Video: 50 years sideways

I was going to wait for the weekend before I posted this on site, but now that Autoblog’s got hold of it, I’m getting emails left, right and centre.

Here’s a bit of weekend entertainment for you.

It’s 90 minutes long, so make sure you’ve got a good supply of popcorn and a comfy chair. It’s well worth taking a break for this one.

The film is mostly about racing and its history, with an emphasis on rallying. There’s a good deal of Saab vision in there, too. But it’s not a Saab enthusiasts’ film, it’s a motoring enthusiasts’ film.

Enjoy.

As a Finn, I just couldn’t watch this without frequent goose bumps and emotions. Lots of footage from my neighborhood as well…

Great Film about Rallying…

Watched it last evening and its a big +1! Very cool film from when rallying was driven by men with more hair on their chest than the head 😉 Lots of old SAABs mixed with every dream car rallying produced up to late 1990s. And some marvelous shots from the history of the Safari rally in Kenya! If you never has seen aquaplaning watch the celica comming down the soaking wet dirtroad in Kenya 😉 Moving forvard, with the front pointing every other direction. Have a good watch! I´m of to play with my SAAB in the snow covered roads… Read more »
